Patrick Fuery is a professor and Director of the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries at Wilkinson College of Arts in California. He received a grant for “Rewilding and the Invisible.” This project will explore the concept, philosophy, and actions of rewilding through an awareness of the “invisible” presence of animals. He writes:
As humanity becomes more isolated and removed from the wild, strategies are needed to re-engage with those very elements—broadly animals, and the exemplar here of the wolf—that are crucial to this rebalancing. The distance humanity has acquired from wilderness has come at the cost of a diminishing natural world and a loss of our own inner sense of the wild.
